- Student Expectations/Requirements and Grading Policy: Satisfactory/ Unsatisfactory
A grade of “Satisfactory” must be achieved in order to progress to clinical residency II in the Nurse Anesthesia Program.
Students are expected to participate in their clinical experience as assigned. If an absence is necessary all attempts should be made by the student to contact their assigned instructor for that day or contact the clinical area at least 1 hour prior to the beginning of the operative schedule. All unexcused absences must be made up or a “Fail” grade will be awarded for that day. All extended absences form the clinical area will be reviewed by the Clinical Collaborative Evaluation Committee and recommendation made to the Program Coordinator.
Scheduled Time Off:
Students will be given 15 personal days in your 16 months of clinical residency to take off during clinical rotations when as needed. These days off are for sick time, personal time and vacation time. All days excluding sick days are to be arranged and approved by your clinical coordinators. Please be cautious with your time as any time in excess of the 15 days will need to be made up prior to completing the program, thereby potentially extending your graduation date. Please be advised that unusual circumstances that may extend normal allotted personal days will be dealt with on an individual basis and only approved by the director or assistant director.
Rotation Times and Schedules:
Students will have the schedules and tour of duty times posted and decided by the clinical coordinators at each clinical site. This may include holidays, night shift, evening shift or in house call as the clinical coordinators deem necessary to give the student the best clinical experience. Should a student work excessive hours in a tour of duty compensatory time off will be arranged and agreed upon by the clinical coordinators, assistant director of director as they see fit. It is the students’ responsibility to keep a log of clinical hours and address the clinical coordinator when they feel compensatory time off is warranted. Clinical coordinators will determine if compensatory time is appropriate. Students should be prepared to complete all cases they start with in a reasonable time period or if the case is a rare opportunity for learning. Students should also be prepared to become an integral part of the anesthesia department at each clinical rotation site. This includes participation in clinical conference, performing pre operative and post operative assessments and activities such as journal club. Please note a time log will now be mandatory for all students. Students are to have preceptors sign a daily log of attendance and the clinical coordinators are to sign the time log every two weeks. Upon a completed 2 week attendance log students are responsible to give the log to the program as proof of attendance. Should a student fail to have their time documented and approved by the clinical coordinator they will be docked personal time. It they have no further personal time they will be placed on probation and possible dismissal from the program.
